  • It's a great mission and I love to see more of this in the future where the PJrians could be more proactive on what they want in their environment/neighbourhood/workplace. MBPJ should also make an effort to make sure the PJrians are heard and work together as a community to make PJ a better place.

    On mission 'Community Engagement with PJKITA'  ·  August 2017

  • Amazing experience for those who registered! We got to mingle and interact with the community in PJ and find out what their thoughts were.

    Registration on the mission page was very user-friendly and informative! Looking forward to joining more missions! Woohoo!

  • I think this is a great effort to kickstart this democratic way of development! Kudos to MBPJ to have this initiative. Public response was good where you can see some of them very eager to share their thoughts and have a positive outlook to this. Some people are still quite new to this idea but able to spark some curiosity in people. Can't wait to see more of these opportunities in future and come to fruition

  • I had such a great time at the #PJKITA event! I had the opportunity to learn how to put on a thick skin and bravely engage strangers to gather ideas and feedback for their beloved community. And in that process, I made many new awesome friends while being able to do my bit for a social change.

    On mission 'Community Engagement with PJKITA'  ·  August 2017

  • It was really hectic but great to see the PJ community involved in giving feedback for their own neighborhood! I was very pleasantly surprised to have met individuals who are motivated and dedicated to their own environment and were most eager to contribute.

    On mission 'Community Engagement with PJKITA'  ·  August 2017

  • Overall, this was a good engagement session with PJrians communities. Its my first time involving in such community engagement. Some of the people are curious with this type of engagement. Nevertheless, they are willing to share their ideas on how to improve the PJ communities. Hopefully, the relevant stakeholders would be able to take necessary actions to help mitigate issues and also improve PJ for better.

    On mission 'Community Engagement with PJKITA'  ·  August 2017

  • PJKita provided us a great opportunity to understand the concerns and needs of the PJ-ians. It's exciting to see what sort of change they're looking forward to in their physical environment, and its often what we may overlook. I would love to see more of these public engagements to help build a community-inclusive city. Overall, great job!

  • This Mission was AMAZING! I had so much fun building as well as connecting with the community of Kampung Hulu Tamu. Would definitely share my experience with friends and recommend them to join!

  • ST

    This is definitely one of the highlight in my life! It was great to know and work with all the awesome people during this build. Good job guyss!

    On mission 'EPIC's 100th Build!'  ·  August 2017

  • It was an amazing weekend! I met so many amazing people who had the same focus on mind, to help change the lives of an entire family! Made tons of new friends and enjoyed giving back through this mission.

    Side note: Sedunia mission page is very user friendly!

    On mission 'EPIC's 100th Build!'  ·  August 2017

  • This was my first build after joining a Builder Basic Workshop, which gave me hands on experience in building a real house with group of amazing people. Couldn't believe we are building a house where people are going to stay. I will definitely join to build again.

    On mission 'EPIC's 100th Build!'  ·  August 2017

  • Great experience with the EPIC facilitators. Nice to have met the architect/designer of the project as well. Gives context to what us volunteers are contributing towards.
    Hands-on practical work makes anyone appreciate the blue collar workers everywhere.
    All in all, an extremely great experience.
    Will probably look out for a mission/project in suburban/rural locations next time.

    On mission 'Street Mural Art & Bricklaying SPECIAL @ PJKita! - Week 2'  ·  October 2017

  • On mission 'The Collective Dream Team'  ·  March 2018

  • Awesome experience. Definitely will come back for 2nd time Epic Home event. Thanks for the wonderful memories of 2018.

    On mission 'Oleon & Business Partners’ Epic Builds'  ·  July 2018

  • Great experience g ! most of them were first time builders but they build like an expert. they give all of their time and energy to build a home and shelter for those who are in needs. Looking forward for the next mission! =)

  • Sharing the experience and view specifically for Kg Serigala families:

    It was a very easy-going and friendly atmosphere and task. Probably many thanks to the Lead (Daniel) for establishing good relations.
    The personal journey & experience is new and an eye-opener.

    In summary, the few families interviewed were laid back. Having enough to live by. Not really having any grouses, so long as no trouble looks for them.
    Most of the standard brick houses are built with the assistance from JAKOA. And no huge problems are seen so far. But the delivery lead time has been found wanting.

    -Electricity is good, rarely do they experience outages. Even if there were, TNB response is decent with a lead time of 2 days.
    -Water is an ongoing problem and they have learnt to live with it/around it for many years before SYABAS brought water in, and even after that. Because after SYABAS supply began, they still only have water from ~5 hours (12am-5am)
    -Medical assistance has gone missing via mobile clinic (Klinik bergerak) since the end of GE14
    -Education for the current generation of school-going children is a priority for the parents. Those who have since passed the ages of 16-18 have either dropped out or received no formal education.
    -Land titles have been a forever problem. The whole village would at least like to see the land, that their village sits on, gazetted. May not necessarily need a land title for individual homes, as the village is a community as well as a family all the same.
    -Sometimes there is encroachment from 'neighbouring' Kg orang Melayu. But in the end, everyone tries to settle such disputes amicably (tak mau cari pasal la).

    Skills (hidden, potential or otherwise), dreams, interests, future wishes, etc... All these differ for all individuals. And also perhaps they are very modest about what the have done, and the skills and knowledge of DIY maker/repair works may seem normal to them also.

  • It was a really good experience to understand a deeper view of the Orang Asli areas. It was also an eye-opening experience as it gave me not only a better view on the rural, but also a deeper understanding between the problems and issues faced by them. I would recommend joining!

  • It was a great build. The weather was just nice. The community were very helpful. I hope to do more of this.

    On mission 'Toy Libraries Malaysia - Library Build'  ·  August 2018

  • Personally as my 1st build (though partial), it's a great practical experience after having gone through the Basic Builder's Workshop with EPIC.

    All thanks to everyone involved; volunteers, sponsors, organisers and especially the JMB/residents who took good care of our food & drinks to keep everyone going throughout the sunny day.

    On mission 'Toy Libraries Malaysia - Library Build'  ·  August 2018

  • Good effort from all the team members who managed to work together very well and follow all the instructions, rules and finished the tasks given on time. I am so honored to join and contribute to this mission. The level of satisfaction was very high. WELL DONE!

    On mission 'Toy Libraries Malaysia - Library Build'  ·  August 2018

  • It was so exhausting! The pipes we heavy and long. The first time I carry the pipe uphill, I thought Im going to die from tiredness. However, the experience i gained was golden! The villagers were friendly and helpful, they stopped whenever i felt tired. The post-carrying moment is the best because the villagers took us to a majestic waterfall twice! All in all, being a city boy, I learnt a lot from this experience and I will totally recommend it to my friends!
